Creative Commons Introductory Video

I stumbled into this video today which I think provides an excellent introduction to Creative Commons, the non-profit organization that provides standardized licenses to grant various types of copyright permissions on someone’s work.

While I’m not an expert at this — at all — a few years ago, it took me less than thirty minutes to go to their site, find an appropriate license, and start publishing this blog under a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial-Share Alike License.

If you’re interested in learning more about this topic and the legal foundations for important web 2.0 concepts like re-mixing and mash-ups, then watch the six-minute video, below.
